It was hard to find a simple T-Rex knitting graph pattern so the easiest thing to do was draw one on graph paper to go on the back of this Shepherd’s (Book 1002) Raglan Jacket with Hoodie. Instead of putting in a zip, I knitted a button band. I haven’t shown the graph for the front pockets, they were drawn up in the same way but a lot smaller than the T-Rex on the back.

Even though we are having a very mild autumn, I’ve been trawling the patterns on line to make some fingerless mitts and bedsocks for the family. The children’s mitts are from ‘Adorable kids fingerless mitts by Kiwiyarns Knits,’ and the small sized ladies mitts are from ‘Lazy Rib Fingerless Mitts by Chocolatetrudi.’
